North Korea has unveiled the appearance of Chairman Kim Jong-un, who is unusually looking around the site. I visited the flood recovery site five years ago, but this is the first time I have shown the damage site as it is.

A house filled with water has become a place where people cannot live.
North Korean media revealed the appearance of Chairman Kim Jong-un, who visited the site of flood damage in Eunpa-gun in the Yellow Sea.
He said that he had also ordered the removal of spare supplies to support the victims of food and necessities.

Chairman Kim, who sits directly in the driver's seat, seems to have tried to show the state of the top leaders caring for the residents.
It is the second time since Kim visited the city of Naseon in September 2015.
But at the time, it was a place of encouragement after the recovery had progressed considerably
This time, there is a difference that I looked around the flooding site.
It is also observed that it was not in view of the external aid that showed the site of the flood.
The government has opened the possibility of aid even though it is watching the North Korean situation.

North Korea has yet to disclose the overall status of flooding.
